EDISON -

"Real Housewives of New Jersey” husband Joe Giudice has been granted a stay of his deportation order to Italy that will temporarily keep him in the country.

The lawyers for Giudice, 46, filed the stay when the Board of Immigration Appeals denied an appeal on his deportation order.

Giudice finished a 41-month sentence last month for tax evasion and was transferred to an ICE detention center.

Giudice and his wife, Teresa, pleaded guilty in 2014 to financial fraud. Giudice is an Italian citizen who was brought to the U.S. as a baby and says he wasn't aware he wasn't an American citizen.

Teresa Giudice served nearly a year in prison and was freed in December 2015. Joe Giudice was released from prison last month and was sent to an Immigration and Customs Enforcement detention facility in southeast Pennsylvania.
